Solid figures forms
A set of 6 geometric forms: a cube, a cuboid, a cone, a pyramid with a square base, a cylinder and a hemisphere. Each model consists of two parts connected by a hinge. In a closed form, the models are cubes with opening slots in the shapes’ inner structure. After opening, the opening slots are visible in each of the shape’s halves (a vertical cross-section). The models allow you to discover the differentiation of solids based on the same geometric figure.
The model will be especially useful in mathematics and early childhood education classes.
If you would like to get ideas and inspiration about using these models during your lessons please check out our Skriware Academy suggestions: “Discover the solid figures” lesson: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/88.
Each model consists of two parts (marked in the file titles with the letters "a" and "b"), which should be put together after printing.
If you want to print more copies of the selected item, you can use the multiplier in the slicer ("multiply model" function). Use the "+" and "-" buttons to set the desired number of models and the slicer will automatically place them on the print bed.
Among the files to be printed you will find:
Single item files:
- Pyramid a: half of the pyramid form - part A,
- Pyramid b: half of the pyramid form - part B,
- Cylinder a: half of the cylinder form - part A,
- Cylinder b: half of the cylinder form - part B,
- Cuboid a: half of the cuboid form - part A,
- Cuboid b: half of the cuboid form - part B,
- Cube a: half of the cube form - part A,
- Cube b: half of the cube form - part B,
- Cone a: half of the cone form - part A,
- Cone b: half of the cone form - part B,
- 1 hemisphere a: half of the hemisphere form - part A,
- 1 hemisphere b: half of the hemisphere form - part B.

After printing, the models should be folded by firmly pressing on the hinges.
